Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Chuck Gunsten and I am thrilled to be joining the Global Arts Plus community! I’ve spent the past 9 years teaching 4th, 5th, and 6th grade between Jackson Elementary and Groveland Park Elementary. Before that I taught 5th and 6th grade in Bloomington and Seattle for several years. My wife Molly and I are both St. Paul natives and graduates of St. Paul Public Schools. We live in the neighborhood just a few blocks away! I have three children: Maeve who is 12 and is entering 7th grade at Capitol Hill, Walter who is 9 years old and is entering 4th grade also at Capitol Hill, and our youngest son Declan who just turned 3 in April.
I have been a teacher for over 15 years, and I am very passionate about education. I love teaching 4th grade and I’m very excited to return to a 4th grade classroom this year. When I am not teaching, I love traveling with my family, camping, and watching Minnesota Sports.
Even though we are starting the year in Distance Learning, I am excited to begin the process of getting to know the families, students, and staff at Global Arts! Please feel to contact me at any point with any questions.
